Re: Landlord Renewed TA but decided to Sell what to do?

You have some ability to negotiate - you should insist on 3 months notice to sell and 48 hours notice (in writing by POST - refuse to accept it by text). They'll bitch and this where you say "if you refund my agents fee which is a loss for me due to the requested early sale I will be more cooperativ...

Re: Starhub no longer attractive

Mr Kuan (CEO of Singtel) has responded to thank me for the feedback and that they are looking into this. Wow, seriously? That was fast. Hope something actually becomes of this. With the direct intervention of the CEO's PA (or maybe EA) I now have Singtel TV installation scheduled for Sat AM. I thin...

Yep - you could fly to Phuket and have the work done there. No need to leave Phuket and no quarantine required.

FYI I have had dental work done in BKK but can't remember where. It was ok.

Re: Has Anyone Had Dental Work Done at Bumrungrad or Similar in Thailand?

Hong Kong has good cheap dentists - or it did. I think those places you've mentioned in BKK are ok and now with the Phuket "sandbox" open you can go in there. There are dentists in Phuket who are good and probably a branch of Bumrungrad or BIDC??? Personally I would go to Mexico if I were in Houston...

Contrary to your suggestion, the gahmen today disagrees that it’s a cockup, far from it. In fact, it creates jobs, specifically good/great jobs.
I assume you're being sarcastic?

Re: Tricky landlord - house is sold as is, but want us to do..

Your lease is not terminated just because the house is sold by the ways, esp if you've not been given adequate notice as per the TA. The contract is the contract and it sounds like the LL is in breach. I would be counter demanding assistance in removal costs, temporary accomodation and monies toward...

Re: Does the government consider race when granting PR?

There’s the CMIO race quota (Chinese, Malay, Indian, Others) to maintain the social fabric of Singapore. Majority of the quota is allocated to the Chinese, then Malays, followed by Indians, and the smallest percentage goes to Others. So, imagine if you’re in the Others quota and (for example) 1000 ...

Re: If you could turn back the clock to 5 years ago...what would you do?

I'd have quit my miserable corporate job and switched to freelance which I enjoy so much more.

I'd buy into Saxo MOAT funds much earlier as well.

Australian tax residency changes

https://youtu.be/C1UyJxt1o7s Seems it's catching a few folks out. Seems some Aussies have been playing a bit hard and fast pretending to be real expats and flitting back and forth and risk getting caught out including one of former PMs sons. The Smats guy is just annoyed because now he can't play bo...

Desatan hates regulation. Unless it's enforcing his orthodoxy and the big lie that Trump won.
